Crofton, MD home sales continue to improve dramatically in 2014. Part of the reason is an increasing inventory, continuing good interest rates, and the employment market in this part of the country. The current inventory for all Crofton homes for sale is 77. This figure is still comparatively low at about 80% of the 5 year average for listings.   If you’re not already working with an agent, and you’re looking to buy or sell a home in Crofton, MD...I can help.

I always hesitate to make real estate predictions based on limited data. For instance, two leading indicators for the Crofton MD real estate market were both going in the wrong direction in January, 2014.   The first, SOLD LISTINGS, showed a decline of -33% from January of 2013. Only 12 listings sold in all of Crofton, MD in January, 2014. Unusual, certainly. A trend, I doubt it. Listing inventory has been low for quite some time, and January, 2014 presented us with far too many weather opportunities.   The AVERAGE DAYS ON MARKET has increased significantly as well from May, 2013.   Both indicators, taken together, do indicate that the market is moving away from favoring sellers, to being more in balance, or slightly favoring buyers.   If you’re not already working with an agent to buy ...

Active listings are up somewhat compared to earlier in 2013. Days on the market is creeping up as well, and as we know, these two statistics go hand in hand. Crofton, MD, a destination community for people relocating to Anne Arundel County, is still maintaining a robust real estate market.  Despite the time of year, and the extremely cold weather we've been having, buyers are out and searching for Crofton homes.

Anybody who thinks that real estate statistics can only go up, is going to be in for a huge surprise at some point. Crofton, MD, has had a robust real estate market for most of 2013. November, however, has shown a significant reduction in sales. By clicking on the graph, you will see that the 18 homes sold in November, 2013 was actually 38% lower sales than November 2012. The blue line indicates sold homes, and the red line indicates Active Listings.     The reduction actually started in October 2013, and continued into November. While two months doesn’t always indicate a trend, this performance in the Crofton market may be causing sellers some concern.   It’s not all bad news though. Median prices are higher than November, 2012, and are currently $351,000. Days on the market are at 56 ...

The inventory is up a little, and the sales are down, but the Crofton MD real estate market keeps chugging along. Yes, the winter months do put a little damper on buying and selling real estate.  That being said, now is the time to get out there without as many buyers competing for the same house. Sellers, less inventory means less competition for buyers. Today, the least expensive home in the Crofton inventory is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, listed at $158,000. This is a condo in the Bancroft/Meadowcroft section. At the top of the Crofton market is a 5 bedroom, 3.5 bath house listed at $609,900. This beauty is in the Tiers of Walden.

Crofton, MD has had a robust real estate market for just about all of 2013. If you tried to get a Crofton home earlier in the year, when the inventory was at a five year low, you'll be happy to learn that it's gone up somewhat lately. Crofton currently has 70 homes for sale, in all price ranges, and in all styles. This time of year, sellers are willing to deal since showings do go down in the winter months.

As always, the location is the Crofton Country Club, located at 1691 Crofton Pkwy., Crofton, MD 21114.

Entertainment will also be provided by the Elizabeth Ann Seton children's choir, and a local band, Pocket Change.

Christmas Tree Lighting in Crofton, Maryland - December 2, 2013 Don't miss the Christmas Tree lighting tomorrow night, December 2, in front of Crofton Country Club, at 7 p.m.  This has been an annual tradition since my children were small, and now it's become a family tradition for our grandchildren. It's a great time, and you don't want to miss it - even if you don't have children in your household. Enjoy caroling by the children's choir of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish prior to the tree lighting, and a holiday party in the clubhouse after Santa's arrival aboard a fire truck. A local band, Pocket Change, will provide holiday music while children visit Santa, and there will be refreshments, two clowns, and arts and crafts for kids to enjoy while waiting their turn with Santa.

Most of the homes in Olde Crofton, bordered by Rt. 3, Rt. 424, and Rt. 450, were built in the 60's and 70's, and don't have basements. If I were to hazard a guess based on experience, I would say about 20%. Basements, especially when they are finished, are a feature that many home buyers have on their needs list. Even though they may not get full value for living space by appraisers, buyers love finished basements. The extra living space is just that good. Since Crofton has expanded well beyond the confines of the Crofton Triangle, and, with the advent of newer homes being built, almost all of the newer construction homes have basements. Communities like Crofton Chase, Crofton Farm, and Walden are all filled with three level detached homes. Below you will see a list of the detached home...
